One of my latest obsessions, is creating mini mixed media canvases. There is something about their smaller size that is less threatening and overwhelming. I especially love incorporating metal embellishments with stamped images for a different, eclectic look.
The Whimsical Diver stamp is quickly becoming a favorite. I find myself reaching for it over and over again. For this project, I simply stamped the image onto heavy cardstock, then colored the image for effect. I also added a few alcohol ink colored rhinestones for texture.
Using the same sprays and paints (Shimmerz Paints) on the canvas AND embellishments, I created a cohesive project that looks like all of the individual parts were made for each other.
In addition to the texture created on my canvas with a Crafters Workshop stencil, I added a bit of stamping, using Bubble Background. This is a great stamp for creating amazing texture on any mixed media project.
